    I'm currently in the middle of sorting out my UCAS application and I'm applying for 2 courses at SOAS. BA Korean and the BA Korean and Japanese courses.

    So here's my problem. My application will be sent off with my birth name and title, but I am a transgender male person and will be legally changing my name by deed poll next year in March, first and last name. I will also be changing my title from Miss to a more gender neutral title, Mx. I would have done this sooner cause I'll be 18 in December, but I'll be overseas for a month from mid-December to January and I'm travelling again for almost a week during March. So I can only change my name after I've done all this travelling.

    How much of an interference will this do to my application? As you can tell from my username, my preferred name is Taelor Lee and it's completely from my birth name. Will I need to email the universities that I've applied to after I've done the deed poll to explain my situation? I literally have no idea what to do.

    Whichever uní you decide to study at, call them once you're done travelling or once you've got your login details to enrol online after accepting an offer, you can change your details yourself after logging into the system.

    Awesome, thanks. Literally saved me from months of panicking over nothing.
